Cloud Security: AWS Abstract

With enterprises moving their IT infrastructure to the cloud using providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS), security problems have not been reduced. In fact, cloud computing brings new security challenges. Our research investigated better solutions to the security problems that come with using the cloud to store a companies data.

The cloud is a general term for using the internet to receive some sort of data vs connecting directly to a server. This makes it easier to do things such as connecting to an online app to even retrieving information about your company such as the statics on all of the employs in your workplace. Storing information in the cloud is a lot cheaper than using a server to store certain information. Of course, however, it is relatively harder to secure and implement the cloud in the workforce. So we investigated which cloud solution would be easiest to implement in a workplace environment. We spent most of the summer working towards getting the cloud to communicate with a simple app we had created. This app would then use a third party, such as Facebook to verify and log you into the app. Due to the limited experience, we had when we began this project we had to fail many a time until we finally succeeded. I hope in the future we are able to explore more deeply into more complex versions of cloud security.
